Writing workshop offered
Ursuline College and Lake Erie College are co-sponsoring a virtual two-part science fiction writing workshop exploring the works of the late Cleveland writer Andre (nee Alice) Norton. The sessions take place on Oct. 25 and Nov. 1, both from 7-9 p.m. via Zoom. The workshop is free and open to the public with registration required.
Both sessions of the sci-fi writing workshop will be facilitated by science fiction writer Marie Vibbert. Participants will discuss craft details from those passages and the role of science fiction in encouraging difficult conversations surrounding gender roles, for example. Participants will then tackle two writing exercises intended to help generate story ideas and plot structure.
The Nov. 1 session will open with participants sharing something they wrote, followed by a discussion of craft. Participants will be tasked with coming up with questions the passages raise to enhance the exploration of invention and social issues.
Registration is open to the public, with spots reserved for Ursuline College and Lake Erie College students available on a first-come, first-served basis. There may be a public program on Ms. Norton in the spring of 2022 with a keynote by Ms. Vibbert. Register for the consecutive workshops at ursuline.edu.
